On receiving the articles, the documents accompanying them, the fees prescribed by government regulation and any other document or information required by the Minister, the Minister shall send a notice to the Conseil de la coopération du Québec advising it of the application for constitution, together with a copy of the articles and of the application. Not later than 15 days after the sending of the notice or as soon as the Conseil has responded, the Minister may, if he deems it advisable, constitute the cooperative.
For that purpose, the Minister
(1) shall endorse on the articles the words “cooperative constituted” and the date of constitution, followed by his signature or that of his designee;
(2) registers the articles;
(3) sends a certified copy of the articles to the cooperative or its representative;
(4) sends a certified copy of the articles accompanied with the notices referred to in paragraphs 2 and 4 of section 12 to the enterprise registrar, who deposits them in the register instituted under the Act respecting the legal publicity of sole proprietorships, partnerships and legal persons (chapter P-45).
However, the notices prescribed in paragraphs 2 and 4 of section 12 need not accompany the articles if a certified copy of the articles is sent to the enterprise registrar with the initial declaration under the Act respecting the legal publicity of sole proprietorships, partnerships and legal persons.
